This one was requested a while ago. Sorry about the delay. I've only got round to doing it now but as we all know, orange juice isn't something you want to rush!

First we need our basic equipment: A jug (I prefer a water purifying jug, but this is entirely up to personal preference), a sieve (to get rid of all that nasty pulp!), a cheese grater (we're not using cheese, silly! This will be used for zest.), sugar, oranges and a glass.

First fill the jug up to 500ml. We need water otherwise the juice will be a thick paste.

Next add a teaspoon of sugar. You can add more or less but I always find a teaspoon to be the perfect amount.

Grate your oranges into a sieve. This will catch any seeds or orange peel that we don't want in our drink.

Add your orange zest to the water/sugar mixture and stir well

I'm adding this for an alcoholic twist but this step is entirely optional

Pour into a glass, add ice and enjoy!

Remember if you're making this at home you can scale the ingredients depending on how much orange juice you want to make.

Don't forget to leave a comment and say thanks!

It's difficult to make orange juice without squeezing the orange, so I suppose you deserve some props.

On the other hand, you used flour and set fire to something. Those are demerits.

I don't think I can trust this recipe.

I kept wondering if the hammer or the hard drives would be used in the recipe.

I personally prefer to use a juicer, but this seems interesting. I'll try it one of these days when I've got the time.

I was fixing a laptop earlier so that's why there's computer stuff in the background. Somebody had bent the pins off the hard drive and then acted like they didn't know what the problem was.

If you follow Randy's recipe to the letter, though, you'll end up with orange peel pieces sitting in a jug of water. That's it. He didn't even grate the peel.

The book gets more nails in it as time progresses, and the glass of water inexplicably gets more and more full and then overflows.

Is this some kind of metaphor, or is does Randy's kitchen exist in a realm in which time flows both backwards and forewards simultaneously?

Time is a lie.

I was going to ask Randy how he liked that Van Lustbader novel, but I think the answer to that question is already obvious.

Is that the one he shows with the saw cutting through it?

Guys... I'm not even sure those are orange peels in the pitcher. *unsettled*

I really do appreciate these cooking threads, since you put so much time into making them creative.

I actually followed the instructions from the peanut butter sandwich thread, and the final product was fairly tasty. Using a croissant was definitely the way to go.

My apologies, I know I meant to, I just got distracted by trying to remember how to spell Juicer.

I eventually googled it.
